Israel requests mediators to pressure Hamas as they present a new truce offer

After a week of intense negotiations in Cairo, the Israeli delegation is returning to Israel with no agreement in sight. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s office has confirmed that the discussions have been unproductive and they are calling on mediators to put pressure on Hamas to accept the proposed ceasefire.

The Israeli authorities had hoped for a successful outcome through “vigorous action,” but despite their efforts, the parties were unable to reach an agreement similar to the one in November that led to the release of hostages held by Hamas in exchange for Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails.

Netanyahu’s office has reiterated Israel’s commitment to securing the release of its citizens held captive by Hamas and ensuring their safe return. The negotiations have been described as “intense,” with representatives from intelligence services and the Israeli Army participating. Egyptian mediation was used as a means of communicating between the two sides, with an updated proposal being put forward to Hamas by Israeli mediators. However, it seems that these efforts have not resulted in any concrete results.
